S4 EP10 | Making the Israel Connection with Bible Recap’s Tara-Leigh Cobble

In this episode of A Jew and A Gentile Discuss, Carly and Ezra talk with Tara-Leigh Cobble, host of The Bible Recap podcast. Tara-Leigh is a real kindred spirit with her love for God’s Word, for Israel and the Jewish people and helping Christians understand the Jewish roots of their faith in Jesus.


Join them for a fun conversation about

  • the way we discovered Tara-Leigh that can only be by God’s hand
  • what Tara-Leigh does and how she turned from someone who had no interest in going to Israel into a leader of twice-a-year teaching tours
  • misconceptions people have about Israel before going,
  • the interesting and pleasant surprises some of them encounter once there
  • how Tara-Leigh observes the Sabbath
  • and how visiting Israel has changed her Bible reading


Along the Way

Along the way, you’ll also hear about

  • an interesting comfort that concerned tourists don’t often think about when traveling to Israel
  • a curious story about a driver, baby car seats and an eye-opening encounter with cultural differences
  • the unexplainable peace one feels in Israel
  • building relationships with Jewish people
  • something known as “the Shabbat elevator”
  • how the Israel landscape isn’t as brown as you might think it is
  • and a fantastic way of sharing your faith with international Uber drivers
